THE GREATEST THREAT TO THE RP REVOLUTION!Submitted by Ralph Waldo on Thu, 09/11/2008 - 19:35
Having been around during the Oil Crisis and stagflation of the 1980's, I recognize some familiar patterns and what could turn out to be the most serious threat to the RP Revolution so far. This threat could come in the form of an "engineered apathy" brought about by lower gas prices, a better economy and a lack of interest in all things RP.
During the oil crisis of the 1980's, it was widely believed that oil was surely "running out" to be gone forever. However, within a few months, oil was abundant, gas prices started coming down, and everyone forgot about all those hard economic times.
From what I have learned in the last 6 months of participating in the RP movement, the "powers that be", have the power to manipulate both the world's currency and oil supply. Furthermore, they are masters at throttling the economic resources to manipulate not only the economies of the world - but also the attitude of its people.
If economic times start getting better over the next few months, I fear that a dangerous apathy could start to creep into the RP movement. If this happens, the revolution could start to loose steam and give up all its hard earned gains and awareness. What a waste for this pattern to be repeated over and over and over again. Never forget folks - These people are smart - very, very smart!
